A Few More Garden Peektures!

This is just a quick photo update of the Near North Locavore community garden. These have been taken over the last couple of weeks, including a few yesterday. I hope you enjoy!

Lemon balm




The last poppy in bloom

Bush beans

Sweet marjoram ready to be harvested!


More peas

Rainbow Swiss chard

Finally! Some ripe tomatoes!

The shade garden got a bit of a makeover {stones that we dug up when creating the garden beds}

Pretty purple flowers that I have no idea what they are called {does anyone know?}

Sweet basil {looking a little sad due to all the rain and attention from the ear wigs!}


Herbs packaged and ready for the Amelia Rising food bank! {pictured: peppermint, spearmint, lemon balm, sweet basil, oregano, sweet marjoram, parsley, garden sage, tri coloured sage, pineapple sage, English thyme, rosemary, and cilantro.}

Oh everything is looking FANTASTIC!
My tomatoes aren't ripening yet, but I've figured out it was slugs that were making mine suffer. *shakes a fist at slugs* A pox upon ye, slugs!

You've got a real talent there, missy! My thumb is less than green, but I keep tryin! :D

I just noticed you posted a link to mah blog! Many thanks!! ^.^

Hurray for red tomatos! You are surely a green goddess.

Thanks everyone! :)

Medusae: you are most welcome and thanks for doing the same! And I am sure you are doing a splendid job...the nightshade toms are difficult for me to grow, even in the best of conditions!

Now if you are killing things like dandelions without even trying, then you are in trouble. ;)
